New This Week

Monday: The return to work. It's certainly good to be back in the office exercising my brain and interacting with other humans again. However, ongoing prednisone withdrawal symptoms continue to kick my ass making me all draggy and depressed. I can't wait until this crap is out of my system.

Tuesday: I now have 165 platelets onboard. That, my friends, falls into the normal platelet count range of 150 - 450. If only it were warmer outside, I'd go for a rip on my l'il Ninja to celebrate. I don't do cold.

Here's a bit of breast cancer information for you. I learned the about the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation at the YSC Conference last month. The organization is trying to raise awareness of this sub-type of breast cancer so more resources can be directed at learning and treating it. Since I am among the 15% of women with this type of breast cancer, I say go TNBC Foundation!

T, I'm sure being at work feels great on some levels & is exhausting on others. Good to hear you're out & about.
